PRP Q & A

What is PRP?

PRP is an innovative treatment that uses your body’s own natural healing powers to restore health and wellness. Holly performs PRP treatments at the office.

First, she draws a sample of blood from your arm and then spins it in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from the other portions of your blood. Your PRP contains a concentrated amount of your body’s natural healing powers, including platelets, growth factors, and the specialized proteins your body uses to reduce inflammation and repair tissue.

Your PRP is then injected into your tissue to stimulate the healing process, resulting in long-term results.

Holly specializes in regenerative medicine and the use of PRP and has invested in a top of the line PRP system to ensure you get the best possible outcomes.

How does PRP help with pain?

At HAR Wellness, Holly uses PRP as a treatment for pain management. She may recommend PRP if you have a soft tissue injury or condition that causes pain in your:

  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Shoulders
  • Low back

Holly uses ultrasound technology to guide her injections to ensure the accuracy of the placement of your PRP. Once injected into the damaged tissue, the platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells get to work and regenerate new, healthy tissue to replace the damaged tissue.

For what aesthetic treatments is PRP used?

Holly also uses PRP for her aesthetic treatments. Some of the aesthetic treatments include:

Vampire Facelift

The Vampire Facelift is an innovative aesthetic technique that combines PRP injections with dermal fillers to smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance your natural contours. During your treatment, Holly injects the PRP and fillers into precise areas of your face to give you the look you want. The fillers improve the shape of your face, while the PRP regenerates your skin from within to restore tone and texture, as well as your youthful radiance.

Hair loss

Holly also offers PRP injections for hair loss. When injected into your scalp, the healing powers of the PRP prolong the growing phase of your hair cycle to improve fullness and health. You may need a series of injections to get the most benefits.

Holly works closely with you when developing your aesthetic treatment plan to ensure you meet your goals.

Whether for pain or beauty, PRP may be the treatment you’ve been seeking. To learn more about the uses of PRP, call HAR Wellness today, or book an appointment online.
